(birthday poem for Retta)

i

the discovery of the Antarctic
fossil
specimen which joins
the continents

ii

you made the front page
when approaching
each new land
made to leap
from the deck into
the port tide of all
parts from Sydney to
Marseilles
the foreignness of these
places
i savour your body
repeatedly
sea & land

iii

the Indian shopkeeper
round the corner
told me
his speciality
from his store
i bring you
spices & rice
the method
3 of water to
every 2 of rice
bring to the boil
steam
with cloth under lid
for about
12 minutes
hey presto!
rice
separated grain
from grain
ah!
come &
join me!
